1823 -  O.103 a R.6? PCGS AU 53 CAC

A blanket of antique grey toning, infused with subtle iridescence, highlights this attractive piece.  A significant die break runs through STATES OF AM.  The die state was first described by Jules Reiver and mentioned in Heritage’s sale of the Reiver Collection in January 2006 (lot 22865).  Only a few other examples have appeared, earning the die state an R.6 rarity rating in the latest AMBPR.  Dr. Link acquired this notable example from David Kahn in May 2017.  Herrman lists only 1 coin in higher grade, a CAC approved PCGS AU 58 in Heritage’s January 2014 FUN Show sale.  

Estimate: $750 to $1,000
